for iraq from george w. bush to barack obama." welcome to both of you. great to be able to talk to both of you here. the close of this campaign. it is very interesting to hear both president obama and mitt romney look in their rearview mirror about the last decade in foreign policy and national security policy and the president saying, look, i ended the war in iraq, we are on a glide path out of afghanistan. and yet we know the threat from both of these countries still remains and there's a lot of unfinished business. michael, you get to a lot of that of course in your book, in iraq. the idea that we're done. put it in the rear view mir but there's a lot of unfinished business. >> yeah. one thing that's striking to me is just really the gap between the campaign rhetoric and what the obama administration's actual policy was in iraq because you have to ask yourself the question, what does it mean to end a war? and it's lot more than simply removing troops and actually, when president obama approached iraq, he, himself, and his team, thought it entailed a lot more than removing troops them
>>> good morning, and welcome to a special election edition of "this week." >>> the obama campaign is slipping. >> we have come too far to turn back now. >> it's on. the final sprint. >> we'll win this election. we'll finish what we started. >> we're going to bring big changes to get america stronger again. >> the candidates cris cross the battlegrounds. >> we need you, ohio. >> i love colorado! >> to break this deadlock race. the big questions now -- can obama's swing state firewall stand up to romney's momentum? how will hurricane sandy shake up the campaign? and with just nine days to go, could a final october surprise send this election into overtime? questions for our headliners. top obama adviser stephanie cutter and house speaker newt gingrich for romney. >>> plus, insight and analysis from our roundtable. george will, austan goolsbee, nicolle wallace, gwen ifill and andrew sullivan. >>> hello again. with just nine days to go, the october surprise is here. hurricane sandy, threatening a massive stretch of the u.s. from virginia to new england. all of the way to the great lak
this is the third and-- thank god-- final debate between barack obama and mitt romney. to topic, foreign policy. bad news for president obama because -- >> in the history of presidents of the united states, he's our worst at foreign policy. >> this is a very weak ill-conceived foreign policy. every place you look is failure. >> the jimmy carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are right now. >> the president has communicated weakness. >> jon: weakness in foreign policy! obama is weaker than coolidge in foreign policy! weaker than polk! weaker than president flinchington j. craphispants. (laughter) as you know, the only president in united states history who ever had his wallet stolen by a baby. (laughter) you don't hear as much about old president craphispants. (laughter) but given obama's foreign policy record, this debate is going to be a bloodbath. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made
obama. he is scheduled to appear in wisconsin, nevada, colorado today. mitt romney is scheduled to be in battleground virginia to talk , which will talk about in a moment. we will cover running at 2:00 p.m. on c-span and the president at 9:00 in colorado. watch here or listen on c-span radio. those are some of the latest headlines. [video clip] >> these are the stories your textbooks left out, great stories about real people in american history, very important moment in american history we don't know about. the first programs in america came to -- came 50 years before the mayflower sailed there there were french and they made wine and had the good sense to land in florida in june if instead of december in massachusetts. but then they were wiped out by the spanish. completely left out of the textbooks. a woman named hanna was taken captive by indians in 1695 and brought to new hampshire. still to come captors in the middle of the night, realized she could get a bounty for scalps of the indians, she went back and did that and made her way to boston, where she was a heroin and a st
. >>> president obama and governor romney were largely in agreement on a range of foreign policy concerns. particularly those centering on the middle east. the ouster of former president mubarak of egypt, the 2014 exit date for afghanistan, the killing of terrorists with nutes romney and obama echoed each other. >> question. is bipartisanship now back in style at least when it comes to foreign policy in a presidential debate? pat buchanan? >> no it isn't but they are moving toward consensus where the american people are at. they are both pro israel, going to stand beside them. both very hawkish toward iran, although they don't want war in the middle east again. they don't want boots on the ground. they both say we have to do nation building here at home because that is the consensus where the american people are at john. but i wouldn't call it bipartisanship. romney lost this debate on points but he won it because he contradicted the image barack obama has sought to portray of him, reckless, bombing people, putting troops in syria. that is why you are seeing the steady momentum of romney
sandy gave president barack obama the chance to show his ability as commander in chief. but it also said any missteps or move that appears politically motivated could cost him. "the post" says the disaster has put romney in a difficult position. one article says he faces the almost impossible task for defining himself in a story that has gripped the nation. romney's critics have pounced on a comment he made about the federal emergency management agency. he said the agency should be eliminated and its functions handled at state levels. the "new york times" said monday the disaster coordination is one of the federal government's most vital functions. romney reportedly failed to respond when asked on tuesday whether he has reconsidered his position. president obama would be speaking to crowd after crowd in swing states if it hadn't been for the storm. he has less than a week to convince undecided voters. most americans have already examined his record over the past four years. he started his term with a sentiment offered by many of those who came before him. >> that america can change. our
>> tonight frontline, the lives of the men who would be president. >> barack obama's a fascinating mixture of boldness and caution. >> when mitt romney gets focused and locked in, watch out. >> stories of family... >> stanley ann dunham was really a thoroughly unconventional mother. >> he had to fend for himself. every step, he was alone. >> the dad stuff just can't be underestimated. >> he had a lot of power to him. he was our hero. >> identity... >> he told his fifth-grade class that his father was an indonesian king. >> he was a white-black kid. >> his extended family is one of the leading mormon families. >> he can't talk about it because it involves polygamy. >> controversy... >> he's the first nobel peace prize winner with a kill list. >> mitt romney doesn't have an ideological bone in his body, as far as i can tell. >> and destiny. >> what unites both of these characters is this sense that there was a place that they were going, a destiny that they had. >> tonight ofrontline, "the choice 2012." >> frontlinis made possible by contributions to your
. he will run a little bit ahead of president obama in the state. he appeals to some voters that obama does not appeal to simply because he's been there along time. i think brown ends up being safe. bill nelson has survived an onslaught of more than $20 million in outside ad spending. he's running against representative connie mack. while mack has had the potential to make it real contest, he has not. nelson is running it pretty close, six. . that's our it will end up on election day,. virginia was tied for very long time. there were 6000 poles in a row that showed it at a tie. -- there were 6000 polls in a row that showed it at a tie. we did the washington post poll that showed romney leading by a much larger number of earlier this week i do and think tim kaine is ahead by 3 points. on election day, this will be really close contest. i still give tim kaine the edge, a tort allen is not dead by any means. host: if you are interested in hearing from those candidates, we have covered many of the debates in the closely contested senate races. c-span.org to find them. reid wilson, editor-i
with a recap of the markets. >>> u.s. president barack obama would be speaking to crowd after crowd in swing states if it hadn't been for the storm. he has less than a week to convince undecided voters. st americans have already examined his record over the past four years. he started his term with a sentiment offered by many of those who came before him. >> that america can change. our union can be perfected. >> many americans have grown tired of what their country had come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a fire fight they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror, justice has been done. >> but some argue obama has not met expectations in the middle east. he's faced persistent trouble with a dominant player in the region, iran. he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral, part of what he
that the tactics that president obama is using talking about binders, bay nets, big bird, some of these, you know, gimmicky things are rubbing people the wrong way, in part, because they want to focus on jobs and the economy, which is this big kind of darker issue that the country is facing right now and it's worrying people a lot. and so the idea that he can talk about things like, you know, the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate where he talked about his destroyer to hire a lot of women, that's kind -- it's not helping him, and i think that's reflected in the poll numbers, because you're seeing right now, romney is it tied or seems to have kind of a momentum, i guess, moving into the final week and that's what pollsters are saying. i think that democrats feel that this will help, particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority of the electorate, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away some things that are very important to them, then the
that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they a
when he endorsed president obama specifically because of the president's leadership on climate change. he contrasted the candidates in this way. one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics. with that, mayor bloomberg, as much as hurricane sandy has forced climate change into the middle of the presidential race. hallelujah. that's exactly where it should be. someplace where republicans can no longer ignore it. not to say they're not going to try. governor romney did his best today while he stood sort of oddly smiling and ulterly silent as a heck lir brought the issue to him during his remarks on the storm. [crowd booing] [crowd chanting u.s.a.] >> jennifer: that look on his face, it's as if he was reminding himself of the deal he struck to get this far. that he wouldn't talk about the climate. even though when he was governor he acknowledged global warming as a real problem
president obama. >> top romney advisor john sununu suggested colin powell backed obama because of race. i will ask newark mayor cory booker what he thinks about the explosive charge. >>> also, pretty controversial, ann coulter. i will talk to her about her shocking new book on race in america. >>> and a real monster of a halloween. sandy, the huge storm, is taking aim at the east coast. will it wreak havoc for the election? this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story tonight in the race for the white house, the finish line is 11 days away and in the crucial battle for ohio, look at this new cnn poll released today. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have leas
candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yester
obama has ignored or rejected. that is disappointing, especially considering how his policies have failed. he promised to listen. he promised us change. but all we have got is more of the same. more spending, more red tape, more debt and decline. a loss of hope. the united states senate, run by the president's party, has not passed a budget in more than 3.5 years. that is irresponsible. and reckless. now the president is demanding another tax increase on small businesses that would destroy more than 700,000 jobs and drive our economy of the fiscal cliff. here in missouri, we count on coal for 82% of our electricity. calldent obama's were on -- war on coal is threatening higher electricity prices for families and job creators. we cannot go on like this. this election is not about president obama, the person. it is about his failed presidency and failed leadership. our country is going in the wrong direction. and mitt romney is the only leader who can turn this economy around. did americans back to work, and build the better america our parents worked and sacrificed to make possible.
elections. host: pennsylvania -- 20 electoral votes. in 2008, barack obama won by 10%. unemployment in the state is nearing what we have nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting a lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes -- was so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground in pennsylvania, at least the moment? guest: the essential difference is that ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats of done well as they have captured the suburbs of our state in these last presidential elections in recent years. that has been the defining difference -- you have the big swath of in the middle, of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area. obviously the cleveland area in the northeastern part of the state is democratic. the cincinnati part in the southwest is more republican. ohio has a larger pool of the swing voters, if you will, and more evenly balanced between the democratic and
this thing? >> i'm going to win it. >> sean: it's important not to forget what four years of obama's policies have gotten us. economy is joke and we are laughed around the world. all this humor is not set sitting well you the american people. according to a survey, governor romney is out in front. and as we reported earlier in the week in critical swing state of ohio, romney is leading in that poll, 50-48. the importance of winning that state cannot be understated. perhaps nobody knows the politics of the buckeye state better than my next guest. joining me from cleveland, ohio, governor john kasich. >> before we get started. i want to say to the listeners, i hope we're saying our prayers to folks on the east coast that have been hard hit, out here in the buckeye stated, our hearts go out to you on and so do our prayers. stay strong and we'll do what we can to help. >> sean: america always rises to the occasion. the tsunami happened. that the people we are. we thank you for that. i to have tell you the devastation on long island. new jersey, entire communities are wiped out. it's going to take
up, president obama has a rally at the university of colorado at >> welcome back to our ongoing debate for the candidates for the 1st district in rhode island. we are recovering from storm sandy that did a huge amount of damage to many coastal homes. but that brings up an issue of federal flood insurance. and i had a question from a viewer should taxpayers provide incentives to healthy americans, not all coast home owners are wealthy but to build and rebuild by subsidizing their insurance? what do you say to that? should taxpayers do that? >> because federal insurance is subsidized by taxpayers, it encourages people to build and rebuild because they've got insurance. >> they should pay their fair share so i'm sure that insurance rates are very high in those areas. >> i never liked federal subsidized insurance on the coast so no. >> so your saying that people's homes who are washed away if they want to rebuild they pay for it themselves? >> i have no problem with. that my parents have a summer house. if that's where they want to put their house, that's their choice. their going t
gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to middle class families in this country. we can help hold down prices in the pump and grow new energy jobs and new manufacturing jobs with my policies. and by the way, if the president were to be re-elected, he's going to continue to promote government and demote businesses. you know -- you know, he put together his own jobs council. business leaders he brought from all over the country. and there are people he picked. you know, it's been nine months since he's been willing to meet with his own jobs council? i see free enterprise as a means for people to fulfill their dreams. yesterday i met with a woman in richmond, virginia. she's been running her family restaurant for years. it's a business in her family for 82 years. at its high point she employed 82 people. she just closed it down. she told me that the regulations, the taxes, the cost of obama care, the obama era economy put her out of business much and s
including some along the garden state parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up-close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air. boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest-ity communities. the governor thanked the president for pledging quick federal relief to the region. it's something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and inte
